Visitors can access our Website homepage and browse most of our site without disclosing their personal data. For each visitor to our Website, our Web server automatically recognizes only the visitor’s domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible). I believe it registers the visitor’s IP #, domain, and referring page, which is a pretty standard function of a web server.
Our server collects only the domain name, but not the e-mail address, of visitors to our Website. We collect the e-mail addresses of those who:
- register for an account and post messages to our message board
- register for an account to post comments, messages or other materials to our Website
- submit links
- register for an advertising account
- communicate with us via e-mail
- make postings to our chat areas
- sign up for our various email or notification lists
- make purchases from our online store
We collect aggregate information on what pages visitors access or visit; information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information and/or site registrations; and we also collect dust (grin).
The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Website, notify visitors about updates to our Website, and to maintain user accounts with specific services we provide, and is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes.
If you do not want to receive e-mail from us in the future, please follow the unsubscribe instructions found in the particular email (recommended method). If for some reason you are not able to unsubscribe by this method, then contact us via the information provided below in the “Contact Information” section (be sure to specify which e-mail list/s as well as the email address you wish to unsubscribe).
A “cookie” is a very small text file that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. It assigns a computer a unique identifier. It is essentially your identification card when you return to a web site. Cookies do not damage your computer. “The claim check you get from a dry-cleaning shop is a perfect mundane example of a cookie; the only thing it’s useful for is to relate a later transaction to this one (so you get the same clothes back).” — from The Online Computing Dictionary
You have the option to not accept cookies by adjusting the appropriate setting(s) on your browser. You will still be able to view the Website, but will not experience, in some areas, some functionality which is designed to make your visit more convenient.
If you use this site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account(s) and password(s) and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account(s) or password(s). If you are under 18, you may use the services provided by Sanguinarius.org only with the involvement or permission of a parent or guardian. Sanguinarius.org (including authorized assistants) reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content, in their sole discretion.
If you register for a user account for one or more services we provide, you can view and edit your information simply by logging on to your user account with your username and password.
This site may contain links to other sites, and may utilize on-site or off-site services provided by third parties in order to bring our visitors additional or enhanced services or functionality. While we encourage others to adopt policies that build trust and confidence in the Internet, we are not responsible for the practices or the content of other web sites.
For further information, consult the privacy policies of the individual third-party sites.
The sites displayed as search results or linked to in Recommended Links (formerly, The Real Vampire Directory) are developed by people over whom Sanguinarius exercises no control. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.
The Recommended Links exhibits its search results in the form of a “URL redirector”, which means that when you click on a URL from a directory listing or search result, information about the clicked link (but not the user) is sent to The Real Vampire Directory, and the RVD in turn sends you to the site you clicked on. Sanguinarius.org uses this URL information to keep track of which links get clicked on, the total number of clicks a link receives, to determine sites’ popularity.
Third-Party Ad Servers and Services
With respect to Ad Servers: To try and bring you offers that are of interest to you, we have relationships with other companies that we allow to place ads on our Web pages. As a result of your visit to our site, ad server companies may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address and clickstream information.

From time to time, we may use visitor information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice.

Sanguinarius can be contacted via the contact form, e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can contact her by Skype, username sangivamp. Sanguinarius can also be found frequently in her chatroom (IRC Channel #Sanguinarius) as Sanguinarius, Sangi_* (ex., Sangi_working, Sangi|NotHere), or some derivative thereof.
If at some point, she is again able to subscribe to a cellphone service, she will include the contact number; but for now, no cellphone. 🙁 Sowwy!
